If your job involved repetitive movements you may be at risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. If you believe this was due to your working conditions, you may be eligible to make an injury claim in Milngavie.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
There are several causes for this condition, most of them work related. Your employer has a legal duty to protect the health and safety of his staff.
If he doesn’t comply with all the rules and regulations, and you get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome because of your job, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Milngavie. Usually the cause may be:
- Constantly using vibrating tools or equipment
- Excessive forceful bending of the wrist
- Regular heavy lifting
- Repeated direct pressure on the base of the palm
- Excessive forceful pinch grips
As soon as you become aware that you may have the problem, you should stop doing whatever you think is the cause and rest your wrist.
The condition occurs because the main nerve that runs from your arm to your hand, passes through the carpal tunnel and can become inflamed or damaged through the actions listed above. The rest is needed to let it recover.
How to make your personal injury claim in Milngavie
To find out about a claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline.
We were established in 2000 to give access to justice to the non-fault victims of accidents and for over 16 years we have helped many thousands of victims get the compensation to which they were entitled.
In 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury claims. This put making a claim out of the reach of many people, so the 1999 Finance Act allowed the conditional fee agreement to be used instead.
This is better known as no-win, no-fee and it is the basis we operate on. As you do not need to find any money to start your claim, anyone can now make a personal injury compensation claim.
On our website there is a 30-second test that will give you some guidance as to the amount you may be eligible for.
